Nearly two months after a sinkhole swallowed two cars during the strongest rainstorm of the year, repair work is nearly complete in a Studio City neighborhood. The sinkhole just off heavily traveled Laurel Canyon Boulevard opened Feb. 17, taking two cars with it under Woodbridge Street. Since then, repair work, including a temporary pipe system, has meant lane closures in the area and a foul odor for residents. The work includes a sewer line under Laurel Canyon Boulevard. Pumps on that line were turned on in March, then crews filled the hole and repaved the area.
